Teacher's Journal

I made this journal for Tanner's First Grade Teacher.  I started this tradition last year when he was in Kindergarten.
I bought several journals at Target last year to make for teachers and friends.  I covered this journal with "I heart School" paper.  I used my ATG gun to adhere the paper to the journal.

I used some Smash tape along the binding of the journal.

I grabbed my Gypsy and used these images from Makin' the Grade.  The school house and grade is sized to 5.48 wide x 2.88 tall.  I put the layers in different quarters of my mat.

Also from Makin' the Grade, I added the Apple Font with "1" sized to 1.55 inches. I copied and pasted two more apples, but used Hide Contour to hide the "1".  This gave me a solid shadow and a leaf layer. 

I added "st" sized to .57 inches.

I cut out the pieces using scraps of cardstock.

I layered the School House/Grade pieces together.  Next, I layered the apple pieces together after cutting off the leaves from the red and black layers.  I adhered the "st" next to the "1" on the apple.
I added a little bit of school bus paper below my 1st Grade sign.  I wrapped some twine (red, blue and green) around the cover of the Journal and tied it into a bow.

I hope Tanner's teacher likes it!!  What special thing do you make or do for your child's teacher?
